If he owns the equipment and does the official interp with a separate report, then there is no modifier needed. Billing just the single code is billing for both parts. Hover with a 22 POS the payer may have questions.

if this is done at a hospital, he can't code the technical. If he uses his own equipment for some reason, he must make a deal with the hospital for them to pay him.
